I suffer from depression and want to kill two birds with one stone, stop smoking and help my moods. Any advice? Thanks, Michael
Hello Hello 07wynne. Let me say Congrats on choosing to quit smoking. That's terrific & just making the choice to quit alone is extremely hard for some so good for you! I myself just started Chantix to help me quit. As to your question w/the Zyban I personally used it in its off brand wellbutrin. It didn't bother my sleep @ all but my Dr explained to me prior that the main sleep disturbance it caused was extremely vivid dreams that may be hard to tell from reality once awake. Other sleep issues he said were very uncommon so I think you're ok. The problem I had with this drug was after using for 10 days I suddenly WITHOUT cause became fixated on killing my husband. I know it sounds crazy funny but it was very real & scary. The urge only lasted about 15mins but i made my husband leave with our kids just incase & called my Dr. Apparently zyban-wellbutrin can cause homicidal tendencies or behaviors as a side effect. I stopped taking it & ive never felt like that again. Thank God. Only a few ppl ever experience this & most ppl dont know this can happen but we all need to know. Good Luck quiting!
